Will Be Rescheduled: Profound Treasury: Entering the Path

With Catherine Neill

May 15 - 17, 2020

We regret that, due to COVID19, Dorje Denma Ling has to rescheduled this program for August. Stay tuned for dates.  Ecology of the Heart retreat for May 1 to 8, 2021.

We have left the “Register” button active, and removed the ability to pay. So if you are interested and would like to come when it is safe to do so, please “Register”… no deposit will be required.

This class will be based on teachings from Volume I of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Join the Dorje Denma Ling staff as they begin their season of practice and study together. In 2020, we will be exploring the teachings of the Hinayana as taught by Trungpa Rinpoche. During this weekend we will look at our motivation to practise meditation, then begin discussing qualities of a dharmic path and what it means to take refuge in the three jewels.

All are welcome to join us!  It is a great way to refresh your understanding of these profound dharma teachings.


Dorje Denma Ling has a large daily overhead that we would like to cover whenever possible. However, we do not want to turn anyone away who wishes to come because of financial considerations. If the In-House Retreat prices or Shrine Room floor option shown below won’t work for you, please email Guest Services with the amount you would be able to pay, and we’ll adjust your Guest Statement to reflect that price.
